Originating from Wiltshire, Jesus Jones (Mike Edwards - guitar, vocals; Tony de Borg - guitars; Al Doughty - bass; Gen - drums; and Iain Baker - keyboards, samples) arrived on the scene in 1989 with three charting singles and a charting debut album, Liquidizer. Their second album, Doubt, (January 1991) was preceded in 1990 by the hit singles "Real, Real, Real," "Right Here, Right Now," and subsequently the Top 10 hit "International Bright Young Thing," and "Who? Where? Why?". The album went to # 1 in the UK, earning a Gold Disc for 100,000 sales. In the US, "Real, Real, Real" and "Right Here, Right Now" reached # 4 and # 2, and the album was certified Platinum for sales of 1,000,000.
At the 34th Annual GRAMMY Awards, Doubt was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album while "Right Here, Right Now" was nominated for Best Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.
Here's what Iain Baker has to say about this album: "While Liquidizer was all about random sounds, found audio and sound effects bursting out of the songs, Doubt was about trying to let samples underpin everything... Despite all of the sampling (and indeed, all of the fuss that surrounded it), Doubt was also just about songs, and the simple art of the pop song itself."
Doubt is pressed on 140 gram translucent orange vinyl.
Easily the high point of the band's career.
